Sheep Shearing Day at Thistle Cove Farm is the third Saturday in April, weather and shearer willing. Farm time is like unto itself and weather is controlled by God; it's always best to contact us to make sure we're still on schedule.
We set up around 8 a.m. and are ready, more or less, for you by 9 a.m. There are always Lost Arts Guild folks to demonstrate heritage crafts such as black smithy, wood working, leather working, fillet crochet, spinning, weaving, broom making and other traditional crafts. Sandy Head Ostrich, for a small fee, provides lunch and hot drinks. You should bring your camera for the photo opportunities that abound; bring your checkbook and/or cash for the lovely hand crafted goods you'll want to take home...such as our 100% virgin wool blankets and yarn or courtn' candles, leather roping/riding saddles, 4-string mountain dulcimers, ostrich feather computer/electronics dusters and lots of other good stuff. Wear comfortable clothes, sweater or jacket and shoes. This is a working farm, please leave your dogs at home because they will not be allowed out of your vehicle.
